We stayed for three nights in the guesthouse. Rooms were tidied and towels were changed everyday. Supplies of tea, coffee and cups in the rooms were also topped up everyday. Nothing seems too much trouble for Sylvia. We were greeted at the reception on art rival and Sylvia showed us to our rooms. Rooms were very clean, beds really comfy...

An overnight stop to see the illuminations, this guest house is ideally situated just around the corner and is also dog friendly.. Quite a large room clean and comfortable with a refurbished shower room. Breakfast order taken the night before ... very nice.. Excellent value.
